Bumbershoot [2] kicks off this today, bringing three days of music, art, comedy, and film to Seattle [3]! This year the Emerald City festival is going green in a big way by boasting an entirely carbon neutral production [4] and offering offset purchases for visitors via NetGreen [5]. Hydration stations, biofuel generators [6], and signage repurposed into tote bags [7] represent just a few of the festival’s sustainable features.

With the goal of of decreasing environmental impact while supporting art, music, culture and the local community, Bumbershoot [2] always gets a crowd moving and motivated, rain or shine. The festival opens Saturday and runs through Monday with headliners including Beck [8], The Stone Temple Pilots [9], and Death Cab for Cutie [10].

In addition to the festival’s carbon-neutral clout, Bumbershoot will be rolling out the three R’s (reduce, reuse, recycle) in full effect, exploring green sources of power, and will feature an exhibition of thought-provoking eco art [11]. Stay tuned for more coverage throughout the week!
